This beautifully illustrated little book is ideal for the Advent and Christmas season with its inspiring, profound, yet popular meditations on the blessings on the season by Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI. These meditations by the acclaimed spiritual teacher, writer, and now Pontiff, give his fresh, unique insights into the deeper meaning of this most wondrous spiritual and human event, and show the Pope to be a man who knew how to speak both to the mind and the heart. As he says in the book, the meditations "have one aim" to awaken that internal act of seeing which can perceive the truth in the words of Scripture: 'The goodness and kindness of God our Savior has appeared.'" 140 pages
